Motion text

That this House understands that vaccines are the most potent tool in the fight against covid-19; recognises that the success of the UK’s covid-19 vaccination rollout is a testament to the commitment and hard work of vaccination teams across the country; notes that the Birkenhead Primary Care Network is one of the most successful vaccination teams in the country, with the highest absolute number of covid-19 vaccinations in the region for vaccination cohorts one to five; recognises that healthcare workers in Birkenhead face additional challenges due to some of the highest levels of deprivation and poverty in the country being in that area; commends the dedication of those healthcare workers and believes that their efforts epitomise the founding spirit of the NHS, as a universal service that it is accessible to all, regardless of means; implores the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care to make available all necessary resources and funding to speed up the rollout of the covid-19 vaccine; and urges the Government to give all NHS staff a fair and substantial pay rise that recognises the immense sacrifices that they have made over the course of the covid-19 pandemic.
